The Day when you would see it, every suckling woman
shall forget her infant whom she suckled, and every
pregnant shall cast away her burden, and you will

And there are some who dispute about Allah without
knowledge, and follow every rebellious devil.
For whom it has been written that who will befriend
him, then he will necessarily misguide him and will
guide him towards the torment of Hell.
'O people! If you have any doubt about the
Resurrection, then consider that We created you from
dust, then. From a drop of water (Sperm), then from
the clot of blood, then from a piece of flesh
fashioned and unfashioned, so that We may manifest
to you Our Signs. And We cause whom We will to
remain in the womb of mothers until an appointed
time, then We bring you out as infant, then in order
that you may reach your maturity, and of you is one
who dies early and is one who is put to a worthless
age so that after knowing knows nothing. And you see
the earth withered up then when We sent down water
upon it, it was freshened and swelled up and grew

others from the path of Allah. For him there is

Judgement, We shall make him taste the torment of
This is because of what your hands sent forth and

And some men worship Allah on an edge, then if any
good reaches him, then he is content therewith and
if trial befalls, turn round on his face; there is
loss of the world and the Hereafter both. This is a
They worship beside Allah such that which can
neither do neither bad nor good to them. This is
indeed straying a-far.
They worship such that whose harm is more expected
than his benefit. No doubt, what an evil patron and
no doubt what an evil comrade.
Undoubtedly, Allah will cause those who believed and
did good deeds to enter Gardens beneath which rivers
flow. No doubt, Allah does what He will.
Whosoever imagines that Allah will not help His
prophet in the world and the Hereafter, let him
stretch a rope upward and let him hang himself, then
let him see whether his device took away that for
which his heart is burning.
And thus We have sent down this Quran as manifest
signs and that Allah guides whom He will.
Undoubtedly, Muslims and Jews and the Sabians and
the Christians and the Magians and the polytheists,
verily Allah will judge between them on the Day of
judgement. Undoubtedly, every thing is before Allah.
Have you not seen that to Allah, prostrates
whosoever is in the heavens and in the earth, and
the sun, and the moon, and the stars, and the
mountains, and the trees, and the beasts, and many
of man kind? And many are those upon whom the
torment is already justified. And whomsoever Allah
disgraces, none is there to give him honour.
Undoubtedly, Allah does what He pleases. [^] (SAJDA)
There are two parties who disputed concerning their
Lord. As for those who disbelieved, the garments of
fire were cut out for them, and boiling water will
be poured down on their heads.
Whereby that which is in their bellies will be
melted and their skins too.
And for them are the maces of iron.
When they will wish to get out of it due to anguish,
again they will be turned back into it and it will
be commanded to them, taste the torment of the fire.
No doubt, Allah will cause those who believed and
did good deeds to enter Gardens beneath which
streams flow, they will be made to wear bracelets of
gold and pearls. And their apparel there is of silk.
And they were guided to pure speech and were guided
to the path of the All Praiseworthy.
Undoubtedly, those who disbelieve and hinder from
the way of Allah and from the Sacred Mosque which We
have appointed equal for all, both for dwellers
therein and visitors. And whoso seeks any
excessiveness in it unjustly, We shall cause them to
taste painful torment.
And when We informed Abraham the right place of the
House, ordained, associate anything with Me, and
keep My House clean for persons making round of it

come to you on foot and on every lean camel coming

him away or the wind blows him away to a distant

means of other, then necessarily, the cloisters and

places are deserted.

recited then the devil added something from his own
side in their recital towards the people. But Allah
removes what the devil casts forth, then Allah
firmly establishes His signs. And Allah is Knowing,

And that is because, Allah causes the night to enter
